Spelunking for 100-Year-Old Huckleberries in Trout Lake, Washington
Besides berries, you might also come upon apples, cheese, and potatoes—just be sure to bring your own light and a pair of high-traction shoes. Nearby Mt. Adams has blessed the Trout Lake area with numerous lava tubes; the Guler Ice Cave—once used by locals as cold storage for perishables—is such an example. Even novice cavers should find the trek, around 600-feet-long, surmountable. Remember to duck and (even in summer) wear warm clothing. Centered in the mossy Gifford-Pinchot National Forest, the site boasts a picnic area for those long-hidden goods you found inside. Potatoes from 1926 are still good, right?
